Posted on 08/02/2020 4:28:48 PM PDT by grundle
The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they diversify their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook.
Fernando Martinez owns a restaurant group with several Hispanic eateries. He accused BLM of using mafia tactics and explained his position.
There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in, Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?
The response by Black Lives Matter was immediate. Several members stood outside one of the business owners establishments demonstrating their displeasure and confronting Martinez when he came outside to talk to them.
If you and I can sit down as human beings that we are without screaming at each other, without calling each other names, without offending each other, we can come to an understanding, Martinez told one protester after explaining that he felt threatened by the way the demands were delivered to his business.
How is destroying our business going to bring any justice?

Hispanics are not fans of BLM.
Destroying business is what Democrats do
Wait until you have black help that hates whites,hates customers and hates being there..Oh yeah,lots of fun ahead for these business owners...
Using the NYT style guide — Sounds like African-American mail to me.
Not to mention they want leadership roles in these businesses....I want it this way for blacks..EXCUSE ME IT’S MY BUSINESS.
Luckily summer is almost over and tourists can see what shakes out by next summer
blm not fans of laraza?
As states declare racism to be a health crisis (CO and MA already have) your steenking little Hispanic business (or white or Asian or Indian business) will be required to “diversify” by order of the state health department.
As we all know now state health departments can declare anything they want to be the law. No legislatures required.
And this is how the dems/commies/blm/antifa expect to get the Hispanic vote?
The rat party is really proving they are the party of hate, doom & gloom. Just why in the Hell would any sane person, regardless of color, vote for that?
Latrina, the Diversification HR Manager of EVERY major company demands that only ‘her’ peps get hired.
A Cuban-American acquaintance of mine is one of the most patriotic people I’ve ever met.
There is a great opportunity for Republicans to promote law and order and reach out to hard working business people in the Hispanic community as well as other minorities (including blacks) whose livelihood is being destroyed by these Marxist BLM thugs.
It’s too bad most establishment Republicans are either too stupid to do this or in on the con.
But But BLM cares SO much about “People of color” NOT..they only care about marxism..they want America to turn into North Korea
People from all over the world still see this as the “land of opportunity” - and they ALL seem puzzled by the economic failures of so many American blacks.
The past few months have demonstrated why we’ll have “segregation forever”; assimilation and racial harmony are myths.
I’ve pointed out on other threads for years now how private-sector employers are burdened with “diversity taxes” by being forced to put x number of ethnic minorities and/or women on the payroll.
Things are coming to ahead now because any company I deal with seems to have done so with Hispanics (men and women).
